  • Falconer, David Duncan, 1940- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1967)
  • Miller, Bruno, 1974- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
    The Gas Turbine Laboratory (GTL) and the Microsystems Technology Laboratory (MTL) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology initiated a joint effort to develop a series MEMS-based turbine engines and turbo generators ...
  • Alex, John, 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    This thesis investigates the geometric representation of ideas during the early stages of design. When a designer's ideas are still in gestation, the exploration of form is more important than its precise specification. ...
  • Sheu, Elysia J. (Elysia Ja-Zeng) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    In this thesis, a literature review of hybrid solar-fossil fuel power generation is first given with an emphasis on system integration and evaluation. Hybrid systems are defined as those which use solar energy and fuel ...
  • Miljkovic, Nenad (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Efficient renewable energy sources are in significant demand to replace diminishing and environmentally harmful fossil fuels. The combination of commercial and residential buildings as well as the industrial sector currently ...
  • Tan, Ceryen (Ceryen C.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Streaming languages such as Streamlt are often utilized to write stream programs that execute on multicore processors. Stream programs consist of actors that operate on streams of data. To execute on multiple cores, actors ...
  • Kang, David Sung-Soo (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1986)
  • Nakibuuka, Norah Elena (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    A hybrid three-switch DC-DC step-up power converter for on chip applications is proposed. It is shown that the hybrid-three switch step-up converter can offer advantages such as reduced size of magnetic components, reduced ...
  • Gu, Zhenya (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    A video compression system is created that combines the JPEG2000 and H.264 standards. JPEG2000 is used to encode the I-frames, while H.264 is used to encode the P-frames. The goal of this thesis is to evaluate the performance ...
  • Son, Seung-Kil, 1964- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    5-axis CNC milling machines are important in a number of industries ranging from aerospace to consumer-die-mold machining because they can deliver high machining accuracy with a spindle tilting capacity. Most of these ...
  • Wang, Ji-yong, 1967- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
  • Ahn, Sehyun (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    A hybrid user interface is a new type of computer user interface that achieves high usability by combining features of graphical user interfaces and command line interfaces. The main goal of a hybrid user interface is to ...
  • Farver, Jennifer M. (Jennifer Margaret), 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    This thesis proposes a hybrid route guidance system in which predictive guidance is generated in a centralized layer and revised in a reactive, decentralized layer that resides on-board the vehicle. This hybrid approach ...
  • Weed, Philip Andrew (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Hybrid wing-body aircraft noise generation and boundary layer ingestion (BLI) performance trends with increased fan face Mach number inlet designs are investigated. The presented topics are in support of the NASA subsonic ...
  • Farnham, Taylor A (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Clathrate hydrates are ice-like solid substances that often form inside oil and gas pipelines and are responsible for flow blockages, sometimes leading to catastrophic disasters. Minimizing hydrate adhesion and accumulation ...
  • Smith, Jonathan David, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Clathrate hydrate formation and subsequent plugging of deep-sea oil and gas pipelines represent a significant bottleneck for ultra deep-sea production. Current methods for hydrate mitigation focus on injecting thermodynamic ...
  • Robbins, Michael F. (Michael Frank) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    As the demand for portable electrical power grows, alternatives to chemical stored energy may enable users with additional system capabilities. This thesis presents a miniature hydroelectric turbine system for use in ...
  • Noh, Minkyun (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    About one in 4000 babies in the United States is born with their esophageal disconnected and separated by a gap, which is called esophageal atresia. Esophageal atresia with a relatively short gap can be directly corrected ...
  • Steyn, J. Lodewyk (Jasper Lodewyk), 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    In this work the concept of hydraulic amplification as a means of stroke amplification is explored for applications in MicroElectroMechanical Systems (MEMS). Building on the batch fabrication technologies of the semiconductor ...
  • Sambuco, Edmund (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1975)
